 USS Jack Homepage 

 

The second Jack (SSN-605) was laid down 16 September 1960 by Naval Shipyard, Portsmouth, N.H; launched 24 April 1963, sponsored by Mrs. Leslie R. Groves, wife of Lieutenant General Groves, head of the Manhattan Project; and commissioned 31 March 1967, Comdr. L. T. Urbanczyk in command.

She then joined the Atlantic Fleet and operates out of New London, Conn., as one of the Navy's fast and versatile nuclear submarines, a mighty weapon helping to assure the United States control of the seas.

USS Jack was built with an experimental direct-drive plant with counter-rotating propellers on a single shaft; her length was 297'4". She was stricken from the Navy List 11 July 1990.
